Bassist/songwriter Fitty Weinhold announced that he has split with U.D.O. (the band created and fronted by ex-Accept frontman Udo Dirkschneider) after 23 years in the band as a partner to Dirkschneider. His last show with the band will be in October.
The emotional video can be found in the player above. Weinhold promises that he has one musical venture left on his "bucket list" and he will surprise fans with that soon.
As of press time, U.D.O. has not made any statement, nor announced a replacement for Weinhold.
